Parent Engagement is an ongoing process that increases active participation, communication, and collaboration between parents, schools, and communities with the goal of educating the whole child to ensure student achievement and success.
The Parent Engagement services are a “build as we go” model outreaching parents in target schools to get involved, engaged, and empowered in order to improve academic success for children. The parents are the driving force and architects of the initiative through family centered activities, academic opportunities for students, and building a campus focused learning community in partnership with school administration and teachers.
